I am exporting to Mach2/3 ATC Arcs (inch). I have also tried Mach2/3 Arcs (inch)

when you select to do the profile in cut2d are you selecting "on the line"?

if so that would explain the size difference.

I cut 1 of the braces yesterday and it worked well. It is when i try to cut all 6 that the problems occur.

Does your machine loose position ??
After cutting all 6 will it return to the exact starting position ??

Yes it is as if it is losing position. But even on the display (mach 3) the tool path is incorrect. I have done some test to to see if it returns to 0 and that functioned well.

This gets more and more curious.

Loading your 'brackets.txt' file here – in the toolpath window, for program limits I get  X Range +0.0000 to +23.1351.

Are you saying that this is an incorrect dimension for the work ?

Sounds like you may have done something wrong in Cut2D then. Can you post your Cut2D file?
